InquilineKea Posted March 13, 2017 Report Share Posted March 13, 2017 In particular, white rice isn't made to taste addicting in the same way that chips are.. so if one consumes small amounts of it throughout the day.. it isn't as bad in practice as is.. consuming lower-GI fried legumes? It's simpler so it probably doesn't have the same spectrum of AGEs as do more fried foods (and which might make rice healthier than many types of bread that have slightly lower GIs but a wider spectrum of AGEs?). What about rice vs legumes? Rice, at least, has little protein. It is lower in nutritional value than legumes. But it can also be seen as less filling. Ultimately, I see the goal of eating as hunger control - consume as few calories as possible to satiate one's sense of hunger. The trick is controlling one's rice intake so that one doesn't eat too much at once (so that one's glucose/insulin levels don't spike) - this is tricky...
